You will have to either shorten the elastic bit and/or move the trouserbuttons down, which is what SH did on mine.

Thurston will also size the suspenders for a bit extra, just email them before buying.

I got XL ones because I am tall and I don't really wear my trousers at belly button level. Maybe get the button placement on your trousers closer to the front center so they lay down better at the back.

Thank you, gentlemen. I'll probably go with FC's recommendation and ask Thurston to make me a customized pair. (Of suspenders, that is.) rimshot.gif

I already had a tailor trim the excess front tabs down to nothing; otherwise I'd have given Butler's recommendation a try first.

Arent'cha the guy that lost to Spoo in the deathmatch thread? You mad/jelly? MC 4 LiFe!!!

Other than the slightly shrunken jacket, which are a quick fix, there's nothing particularly wrong with this fit.

Probably mostly music students. I used to stop practicing at 7:30 and make it to the concert at 7:55, still in jeans and a t-shirt. I never went as far as wearing my usual warm weather practice attire of basketball shorts and a black or heather t-shirt, though.

is it me or is this shape pretty different from your normal stuff? seems to be fuller+softer in the chest and less extreme suppression. Obvious fit issue though is sleeves seem quite a bit too short. Can't decide if I like the overall shape or not, but it just seems quite different.
PS - your last fit showed promising constraint...

-Is the length is ok?
-Slim the arms abit?
-Some tapering? Mainly at the thigh/knee area
-Nip the waist more? or maybe its because I've been used to tightly fitted jackets...

I don't like those roped shoulders with your body type and they look a little bit on that jacket. Not sure if the chest is a bit large as well. The sleeves in and of themselves look a little large. Not sure how much of that has to do with the shoulders though. That tie doesn't work with that color combo.
+1. Look to Banis's fits or Nedawg
